To reach this cemetery from the intersection of State Road 51 and US 27 in Mayo Florida, take State Road 51 South for 12.1 miles. Cemetery is on the right side of road.

Property for cemetery was donated by Mr. Bethel Hankins to the Cooks Hammock Methodist Church, later known as the United Methodist Church in Mayo. Fencing was donated by Misses Leota and Irene McKinney.

The cemetery is in above average condition. It is fenced, has beautiful oak trees, azaleas, gardenia bushes and dogwood trees. It is mowed regularly by the county and we have repaired almost all of the headstones.

I walked this cemetery again in Mar of 2008, taking photos of all the existing stones.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
